with the economic numbers, have to deal with the libya issue. >> as a debater how do you rate president obama? >> i think he's very good. i think both of them are playing the game. president obama was saying something the other day, i'm not really a good debater. gee -- >> they're both very, very smart guys. >> if you talk about the top 1%, intellect, these guys are in the top 1%. there's nothing to choose between them on intellect. there's a lot to choose between them on policy. i hope they get into a good discussion of policy because from my point of view i think romney would get the better of that but i'm not sure. we'll see. >> we looked at past debates. some folks seem to get into trouble when they start debating over the debate rules themselves. i want to play a quick montage of stuff. >> i have to let senator obama respond. and then senator edwards. go ahead and respond. >> wait -- >> you just spoke for two minutes. >> i did not say anything about ronald reagan, you said two things. >> you can dispute that but let me finish. you went on for two minutes. let me finish. >> i'm speaking. i'm sp
, we have late polling. new cnn numbers that show the race tightening. president obama still leads 50% to 47%. the three-point gap is within the poll's margin of error. mr. obama got a four-point bounce to put him in the lead. the president's favorable rating meantime remains above the crucial 50% mark at 52%. mr. romney is close but still in negative territory at 49%. he enjoys an edge on handling the deficit and joblessness, but trails on virtually every other big issue, including medicare, taxes and foreign policy. keeping them honest, when it comes to some of those issues, both candidates have come up short either on specifics or credibility. issues like cutting taxes without ballooning the deficit or burdening the middle class. the romney campaign has been asked again and again for specifics. here's runningmate paul ryan just yesterday on fox news. >> there's been a traditional democrat and republican consensus lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> i have to -- you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have -- it would take me too long to go
drilling ryan over romney's proposed 20% across account board tax cut. >> the obama camp says independent groups say if you cut those tax rates for everybody 20%, it costs $5 trillion over ten years, true? >> not in the least bit true. >> stephen: true, not true, who cares? (laughter) it's over ten years. romney and ryan will only be in office for eight of those. let president bachmann worry about it in 2020. that is what hindsight is for. but folks, just listen to this pit bull. >> how much would it cost. >> it's revenue neutral. >> i'm talking about the cut, we'll get to the deductions. >> the cut in tax rates is lower all american tax rate by 20%. >> how much does that cost. >> it's revenue neutral. >> stephen: okay, revenue neutral, chris. but for some reason wallace wouldn't take no answer for an answer. (laughter) jim? >> well, it's not revenue neutral unless you take away the deduction. >> let me just -- >> you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have-- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> stephen: great answer. (laughter) why-- (cheers and applause)
. here they are. >> this is what president obama said the jobless rate would be if we pass the stimulus, 5.6%. but this is what the jobless rate actually is, 8.1%. the difference, about 3.7 million jobs. obama's spending drove us $5 trillion deeper in debt. and now we have fewer jobs than when he started. what obama processed versus what he delivered. >> american crossroads is responsible for the content of this advertising. >> steve, can we get you to do your reports like that. jim, what's crossroads going for here? >> well, sorts of fits in with the quotes we were talking about. they want to indict the president for failing to live up to his promises, particularly on the economy. and this was always the plan for the romney campaign. they thought they would be able to prevail in this election by pointing out the flaws they see in president obama. the problem is as you mentioned a couple minutes ago that indictment hasn't been crystal clear to a lot of voters. and also, at some point, voters want to know what does the future look like? how will it be different under president romney. a
to find out what women in colorado are saying about the issues and about this race. >> obama's policies are making it harder on women. the poverty rate for women, highest in 17 years. >> when it comes to environment, it's a clear choice. i'm voter for president obama. >> it's a clear choice. no secret, one day before the first debate, both campaigns are focusing op women voters. especially here in colorado. >> we want to know that america is going to be okay. >> diana is a hair stylist who will soon own her own business. she says she is still not sure who will get her vote. >> i'm still trying to figure it out. i do a lot of research. i read a lot. i want to make sure i pick the best candidate. i don't want to go by hearsay or what everybody else is doing. >> she see dark economic clouds on the horizon. >> people are afraid of losing social security, and benefits. it's hard. it's hard to feel safe right now. >> with me with politics how is the economy looking? how is the economy doing? >> nancy collins out with her dog buttercup says ideally she wants a candidate who shares her family v

? >> we have one guy, mitt romney says let's lower the tax rate to 25%. we need that in america but that obama who lot of people don't like what it comes to that strategy. 28%. what is 3% among ceo tie-ins but he says 25% for manufacturing, industry. a lot of republicans don't like industrial policy. i am not saying you should or shouldn't agree with that or disagree but both of these candidates want to help manufacturing whether by industrial policy or more bigger government area or lower the rate. [talking over each other] cheryl: alan mulally would love it if it were 25%. stamping chicago back in may doing gangbuster business. mitt romney wants to do it but obama also wants to do it. the difference is things not in manufacturing. you get 25%, if we could get down to 25 this is going to work. i don't think you should politicize your investment portfolio. dave: no solution the opportunities. [talking over each other] dave: america's top c e os are more pessimistic than in years so why is there outlook dampening and what do they think will turn things around? president of the bu
rated it mostly false because here is the truth. president obama has made medicare more efficient by cutting costs in the program to the tune of $716 billion. that's cutting costs, not cutting patient care, not kicking people off of medicare, not cutting benefits, just cutting costs by making it more efficient. and then he reinvested those savings back into medicare to extend its life by eight years. and this is the kicker. paul ryan proposed the same thing in his budget but now that he has nothing better to run on, he and romney are attacking the president for the very same cuts that were in paul ryan's budget. these are the same proven myths and falsehoods that romney is going to say on wednesday night. these are the ones that his surrogates will repeat in the days after, and up to that debate. we are going to continue to focus on this, because we want you to be armed. it is up to us to refute their claims, us being us and you, and thanks to this memo you have a coming up, as you can see anybody with about ten minutes and a strong stomach can debunk mit

energy a lot. this makes the point that barack obama has done everything possible to raise energy prices. years ago we said electricity rates will skyrocket in terms of slow walking permitting, the keystone pipeline,. melissa: the man hates gasoline. >> it's clever, but if you want to hit the administration where they are truly weak, i'm talking about since last year, but he one-hit the president where he is absolutely week, mortgages, mortgages, mortgages. the administration has done nothing to help middle-class americans when it comes to this to here is another one. take a look at this. it is an advertisement from this pennis u.s. catalog. there are no women in any of the items in the ikea catalog. who are the customers they are trying to sell to? >> cultural sensitivity. melissa: yes, that's right. >> if you want to talk about the real war on women, let's talk about this. you do have to be sensitive as to where you're trying to sell products be mentally recall that ikea had the first ads in the united states with the two men that were partnered. clearly, they are preparing the saudi's

policies that romney now is at very kateing and that obama has kept in place by keeping those budget-busting bush tax cuts as part of our system these four years. neither one of them will talk about our incarceration rate in this country. it's a huge problem. we have 2--almost 2.4 million people behind bars and there are racist implication there is with the war on drugs, which is a completely failed policy. neither of these parties will talk about it, but it impacts millions of people. we have a half million people now in prison and jail because of drug offenses. when the war on drugs was first commenced, there were fewer than 40,000 now there are over 500,000 people behind bars. three out of four people, although blacks and whites do drugs at the same rate. the studies show that. three out of four people imprisoned on drug offenses are black people. 50%-- >> cenk: we're out of time, but i got to ask you one more question. president obama is he a liberal a centrist or in your opinion is he right wing. >> i think he's way right of center. this man has violated every promise he made. e
, and there is nothing quite like the iranian hostage crisis hovering over president obama's head today, and he enjoys approval ratings some 13 points higher than president carter did in the fall of 1980. gregg and jenna? gregg: james rosen in washington, thanks. jenna: in the meantime, the candidates getting ready for tomorrow's big debate in denver. some folks say the president's going to have several advantages including his personal style that's described as low key, in fact, in the past the president's been called no drama obama because of that cool style. what about mitt romney, though? bill o'reilly offering up his advice this morning on fox and friends. take a listen. >> what romney should be doing right now is watching ronald reagan take apart jimmy carter. now, with this caveat; president obama much quicker than jimmy carter, much. however, the way reagan did it was authoritative but kind of folksy. you've got to take the edge off a little bit -- >> no. >> but you've got to be a little bold and fresh out there. but you've got to do it with more of a twinkle in your eye. if he shows malice, h
a few months, says he will leave in president obama wins again, calling for him to create a new interest rate, an american-based interest rate, possibly to replace libor since libor now doesn't have a lot of credibility. why didn't it have a lot of credibility? because it was manipulated. how was it manipulated? libor is not set by some computer. i always thought it was. a bunch of banks send in what they say libor should be and they do a average of those things. it is so easily manipulated as you so. melissa: apparently. now we know. >> should pay zero for our borrowing costs. essentially what was happening during the financial crisis. we know what was happening tim geithner was in the middle of it. two stories. grassley wants to know exactly what was going on with geithner. what did know and when did he know it and look at consequences. i wonder if geithner writes him back before the election. melissa: i thought this story got quiet for a little bit. >> he wants to bring it back. this is a great story, clearly was manipulated. clearly tim geithner as new york fed president, not the cha
seven times the audience of the highest rated 2012 republican primary debate. think about that. seven times. past debates show romney and obama have to worry about cut away shots that are less than flattering. in the past both candidates have come across as irritable, patronizing or disengaged. this was chris christie's advice to the candidates yesterday. >> what you do is go out and be yourself. and people either like it or don't. if they don't, they are going to vote for somebody else. not a tragedy. no one dies. >> finally speaking of debates, there was a barn burner last night in massachusetts where scott brown and democratic challenger elizabeth warren faced off in a debate. moderated by nbc's david gregory. it was tense from the outset. >> if you're going to comment on my record, i would at least have you refer to it -- excuse me. i'm not a student in your classroom. please let me respond, okay? >> that was an echo of a quip brown used in 2010 when he told martha kwaurkly i'm not in your courtroom, i'm not a defendant. i the two fought over whether elizabeth warren used her nati

this is during the recovery. you can't blame this on bush. 2010, the poverty rate is higher 15.1%. in 2011, 15%. 46 million people in this country are now suffering poverty. now you say wait a minute, now if the recession isn't necessarily president obama's fault but he has all these people in poverty, how does that work? because it went to the top 1%. but first let me give a sense of the middle class. median wages they've also gone down down 4.8%. since june of 2009. now $50,946. where did all the money go? and the economic recovery go? it went to the top 1%. in 2010 as we're recovering 93% of the recovery went to the top 1%. now, here's what i would thunder to the president if i was mitt romney. i would say listen, you say you're for the middle class, but look i just showed you the middle class went down under your watch. and you say you're not for the rich, but the rich went up under your watch. 93% of your recovery went to the top 1%. you say i'm for the rich, but look at the results. actions matter more than words and the results show that you are not for the middle class. you are for the

are arguing with that success, if you're calling success around the country an unemployment rate higher than when he took office, median income that's lower than when he took office. if that's success, doesn't president obama have a problem going forward? >> the president took office, i repeat myself, under the most difficult of circumstances. a recession that was caused by the same policies that mitt romney would take us back to. there are no new ideas except to privatize social security, to voucherize medicare, to cut pell grants. that's the obama agenda -- or the romney agenda. and that's why the american people are not accepting mr. romney and his leadership. listen, he has been around for months. he says, you know, i've got some opportunities to tell the people what my vision is. what's he been telling the people over last eight or nine or ten months? the american people have heard his story. they have listened to paul ryan and they have rejected their approach. they are embracing this president's agenda because he's got us headed in the right direction. things are improving in america
this election cycle is we reporters have done our sort of policy impact reporting too much in terms of the obama administration's record. how it has affected the ohio economy. but we have not heard much about agricultural items in nebraska. i have not looked up the unemployment rate in any of the states. swing states. iowa being pretty low. i think we could do a better job with more policy coverage. >> over here? >> wcbs. question colleague's about the polls. it is like going out to dinner. inevitably, somebody will ask everybody else what they are eating before the order, and then there is always someone who will not reveal what they are going to order. somebody mentioned debate, and this really has not come up here. what the impact of the coming debate will be. secondarily, when you talk about the major media, do you think that the coverage, and i am using this term that one network has used, it "fair and balanced -- used, "fair and balanced" to both candidates? >> one of the good things about polls is that that can track things over time. if you go back to pass presidential campaigns, the pol
